Hey guys, hoping you can help me. I'm trying to run Far Cry 3 on a rather old system, the graphics card is OK, 1GB 6870 at stock speeds, but my CPU is an old dog, a Core 2 Duo E6400 @ ~3400MHz. The game runs like crap, 20 - 40fps on the lowest settings, but I can put up with it.

What I can't put up is how awful the game looks. The real problem is there is no anti aliasing. Changing the MSAA setting in the video options does nothing. NOTHING.

The FPS is completely unchanged, from none to 8x, and the graphics are completely unchanged. I was suspicious straight away when there was no pause with a black screen when changing the option like you would normally get when changing AA. I'm in DX11 mode by the way.

I'm very confused by this, and I've not been able to find anyone else with the same problem. I figured that since the game is being severely bottlenecked by my CPU I could at least have some nice anti aliasing and the FPS won't change. But I can't get it on at all.

Here's a sample of how god awful the game looks. I've got everything on low except for the post processing because that seems to have some sort of AA effect on a few items, but not many.

You need to view it full screen to get it in its jagged awfulness. Look at the fences and huts. I can turn all the settings up to max and it still looks bad without any AA. Your guys screenshots look phenomenal, the whole image is very smooth, but on my machine everything is sharp and sticks out very abnormally.

I've tried forcing AA from ATI Tray Tools and it doesn't do anything either.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Locking and crashing on my build. 12.11 drivers and cap 2. Back to sleeping dogs until they drop a patch.

Thank you for the link. Do you know if this is effective for reducing/eliminating the stutter issues?

It's possible... I know it helps in cpu intensive situations/ games. I saw a nice jump in Skyrim and Planetside 2 smile.gif Not too sure how much it helped in FC3 because I always leave the cores unparked now, but I'm thinking it did as I seem to be a little above avg frame rate for my setup compared to a lot that I have seen so far.

Just played the get the knife mission for buck in far cry 3, holy the performance was terrible, felt like 10fps,gpus wouldn't go over 37% usage with vsync on yet it was reporting that it was running at only 35fps, vsync off it gives between 60-115+ but it felt exactly the same, 10 sporadic frames per second
